PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL-Most people like to
acknowledge the best-of-the-best: the best movie, the best
restaurant, the best ball team; the best athlete. Businesses
also like to acknowledge their best employee and Labor Finders is
one of these businesses. This year, Labor Finders, the country's
oldest and largest privately held industrial labor staffing company
in the United States is honored to have found an employee, who
exemplifies the best-of-the-best.
Dan Shube, the Chief Marketing Officer for Labor Finders
International stated, "Our Labor Finders Employee of the Year award
is now in its fith successful year. This whole concept began when I
started hearing stories about the wonderful temporary workers from
our branch managers throughout the country."
Throughout the country, branch managers from both Labor Finders
and LF Staffing offices place around 20,000 people to work daily.
For the Employee of the Year award, the managers submitted
their best candidates by explaining why their worker deserved to be
honored with inspirational award. Some of key points the branch
managers touched upon were attendance, their personal outlook,
and hard work along with the candidates who made
suggestions that saved money or improved safety and if the
temporary worker received a permanent placement or if they won
employee awards while on assignment. Nearly all the top contenders
had glowing comments from their employer (Labor Finders' clients)
along with the Labor Finder's branch managers.
Every office has their star performers; but the winner had to be
a SUPERSTAR! Each of the submissions' stories was compelling
and some moved the judges to tears; although one person stood out
from the rest. Besides the Grand Prize winner, the judges selected
a 1st Runner-Up and a 2nd Runner-Up; in
addition, in addtion many other nominees were recognized as
The Grand Prize winner Anthony ("Tony") Harrington from
Columbia, South Carolina, is a true Southern Gentleman. "He
is one of the most dedicated and hardworking individuals you will
ever meet. All customers jockey for a position to get Tony at their
service," stated Dan Vance, the branch manager of the Columbia
Labor Finders office.
With his honest, positive and soft spoken personality, Tony is a
can-do-it-all worker. You need a Welder, check; Plumber, check;
Sheetrock installed, check; Electrical work, check…you get the
idea; Tony can do just about anything. Now, for the shocker! Tony
was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago. "He has endured Chemo
so many times, I cry for him," said Vance. But what is truly
amazing is that through all of his treatments Tony has maintained
his extremely high level of service, but most of all, his integrity
and devotion to the Labor Finders reputation. This is why; he is
without a doubt the true definition of Employee of the Year because
he always goes above and beyond the call of duty for his co-workers
and for Labor Finders.
"This year's winner displayed all the characteristics that our
customers depend upon Labor Finders associates to provide, however,
he did it in the face of one of life's harshest challenges. Tony is
not only the winner of this competition, he is a winner at life
itself!," stated Shube.

the time to travel to meet with employees one-on-one; well Jeffrey
Burnett, President and CEO of Labor Finders International, is not
